Avelo Airlines Launches First Caribbean Destination with Exclusive Nonstop Service Between Puerto Rico and Southern Connecticut
The Houston-based low-cost airline Avelo Airlines has announced its first Caribbean destination. On November 15, 2023, the airline will begin offering nonstop service between Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN) in Connecticut and San Juan Luis Muoz Marn International Airport (SJU) in Puerto Rico.
In addition to Avelo, this is a major development for the Connecticut travel market as well. The new route will make it easier and more affordable for people in southern Connecticut to visit Puerto Rico since HVN is the smallest commercial airport in the United States with nonstop service to the Caribbean.
Avelo is currently offering introductory one-way fares between HVN and SJU starting at $99. Boeing Next-Generation (NG) 737 aircraft will operate the flights twice weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
“We are excited to announce our first Caribbean destination,” said Andrew Levy, chairman and CEO of Avelo Airlines. “San Juan is a beautiful city with a rich history and culture, and we are confident that our customers will love exploring it.”
“This new route is a win-win for both Connecticut and Puerto Rico,” said Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont. “It will make it easier for Connecticut residents to visit their families and friends in Puerto Rico, and it will also bring more tourists to our state.”
This new route demonstrates the airport’s growing popularity. During recent years, the airport has experienced significant growth in passenger traffic, and this new route will likely add to that growth.
“We are thrilled to welcome Avelo Airlines to Tweed-New Haven Airport,” said Sean Scanlon, executive director of Tweed-New Haven Airport. “This new route is an excellent addition to our portfolio of destinations, and we are confident it will succeed.”
As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean, San Juan is known for its beautiful beaches, vibrant nightlife, and rich history. The city is also a major transportation hub, with connections to other Caribbean islands, the mainland United States, and Europe.
A welcome addition to Connecticut’s travel market is Avelo’s new service between HVN and SJU. Low fares and convenient schedules will make Puerto Rico more accessible to people in southern Connecticut, as well as bringing more tourists to the state.
Avelo Airlines is only at the beginning of its journey. It is anticipated that the airline will add more destinations in the Caribbean and other parts of the United States in the coming years. As a low-cost airline with low fares and convenient service, Avelo has the potential to become a significant player in the industry.
